I logged in to Classic WoW with the paladin, i walked out of the inn and someone wanted to trade with me, i stopped, that someone didn’t want to trade but to inspect me, then said “OMG!” i asked “what?” he answered “get your own gear”.
Weird, i looked at him and he look exactly like my character, same face, hair, facial hair and colors, he is a paladin who have the same gear i have, it’s like i found a copy of me! that was fun 🙂
I went between Elwynn Forest and Don Morogh a lot of times, did quests in both zones, questing is the best way to get money, at least in the early levels when you need every copper and silver, i tried the auction house game but didn’t sell anything so far.
My crafted gear was the best gear and still is, only one 2h mace from a quest was better than what i have, i was lucky to get a 2h axe to drop while questing with other players, i told them i’ll roll need on it, they passed on it and i rolled 3! even when i’m the only one who roll i get 3!
Anyway, later i went to Stormwind to learn axe weapon skill from Woo Ping, the best shirtless NPC ever with a great name to match, he didn’t have axe training for me, i panicked, i thought paladins can’t use axes in Classic, and i took it from 2 other players one of them was a hunter who could use it, but later i went to Ironforge weapon master and he gave me 2h axe weapon skill.
Low level green weapon is so important, the game makes any upgrade an important one, leveling weapons skills is also important, the axe was weak at the beginning but with every swing it gets stronger, or rather i get more skilled.
So far my progress is planned by me and what i want to do, there is little RNG playing here, if i need more weapon skills then i have to use them, if i need better gear then i should craft it.
One place where RNG played a role was getting bags, 2 of them dropped for me and it was like i get a legendary weapon! more space means less going back to vendor trash, the in Goldshire i found a tailor who need materials and crafted for me Linen bag for free.
That’s all, and i think this progress will keep going until level 60 then there will be time when i need dungeons to get better gear, until then i’m enjoying the journey.
